Omega General Help / Re: Power steering hoses.
« on: 23 November 2021, 16:42:13 »
Thanks for all the help everyone has given. Could anyone tell me the recommended fluid, for the steering fluid?  Also can I just bleed it by turning the steering with the engine full left and right a couple of times?

Remind me on, I might have some new botles of fluid in the shed :y

I might not, of course... But Im emptying it tomorrow :D

This is the car, this is the madman who owns it...

He also has my 406 on there, along with a lot of random old things...

General Car Chat / I know a chap selling a TD estate...

The chap I bought my new daily 406 from is now selling this. Ironically I was after one about six months ago, but now I don't have space...

I didn't want to put it in the For Sale section as it isn't mine, what I will say is he's a lovely bloke and my 406 is exactly as he described. If anyone is interested I'm sure I can facilitate a viewing...

Evening!

It's largely ex owners now... But still the most informative forum I know of

Did you not pull it over to ask?

Alas not :D

MrsGK and I were in full stealth mode in the new daily bus... Whisper it... A Peugeot! And the weather had Noah getting his Workmate ready, so she was a tad preoccupied...

You really couldn't make it up could you, what a fool.

Id suggest probably already disliked by his team. Or instead of "I'll grab a couple of quid and put it straight in with extras" he's got all indignant and defensive.

Tosser.

I've had a look and can't find any in my box of spares.

If the old ones are still in one piece then pop down to an engineering shop and ask them to match - theres a couple near us we've used in the past :y

General Car Chat / Re: Number plates
« on: 04 September 2021, 07:59:17 »
The owners of these vehicles just put the legal version of the number plate on when they go for an MOT.

Unfortunately the Police are too busy with work they shouldn't be doing to have time to police the roads these days in my opinion.

Exactly this. It's amazing how many people just happen to have a legal set in the boot "that came with the car". "Really? The previous owner was also called Ron Knob was he?"

Given the calibre of the local females at Redcar (or, to be fussy, South Bank)... I'm quite glad they don't. :y
